This little book describes a trip around the city
via our boulevard and park system, startinj^; from
the Auditorium Hotel on Michigan Boulevard.
Michigan Boulevard — originally an Indian trail
— is considered one of the finest boulevards in the
world. It is about 6 miles long.
On the left is Grant Park which is in process
of construction. Chicago has long needed a breath-
ing space in the downtown district and Grant Park
has been reserved for this purpose.
We pass a number of large structures facing the
lake and for this reason very desirable for hotel
and office buildings.
The tall red building with white trimmings at
7th St. is the Blackstone — one of our most luxu-
rious hotels. This was the first building in Chi-
cago on the roof of which a landing place for
aeroplanes was provided.
At Number 816 is the home offices of the Ameri-
can Radiator Company.
At Number 830 is the Building of the Young
IVomens Christian Association which provides tem-
porary quarters for young women seeking employ-
ment in the city.
The equestrian statue on the left was erected
to commemorate the memory of a favorite son of
Illinois, General John A. Logan. It was designed
by August St. Gaudens.
At the end of the Park is the Illinois Central
R. R. station for through trains. The s 'burban
trains pass through Grant Park but are below the
surface and hardly noticeable.
To the left of the Illinois Central Station the
park is being extended to provide for the new
building of the Field Museum, for which $8,000.-
000 was left in the will of the late Marshall Field.
A new park is being constructed of made ground
which will extend between Grant Park and Jack-
son Park — a distance of several miles along the
shore of the lake.
Michigan Boulevard below 12th St., out as far
south as 33rd St., is known as Automobile Row.
This WAS formerly a residence district but has been
supplanted within the last ten or fifteen years by
dealers in automobiles and accessories.
The large red building on the left in the form
of a U. is St. Luke's — one of our finest hospitals.
Just beyond the viaduct on the right is the First
One block West on Wabash Av. is the Coli-
seum, seating 14,000 people. Many Presidential
candidates have been nominated in this building.
Beyond 16th St. and two blocks to the left is
Prairie Av. This at one time was considered the
choicest residence district of Chicago and contained
the homes of many of our most wealthy citizens.
At 18th St. and Prairie Av. is the residence of
Mrs. Geo. M. Pullman, whose husband w^as the
inventor of the sleeping car bearing his name.
Just east of the Pullman residence is a monu-
ment erected by the Chicago Historic Society com-
memorating the Fort Dearborn Massacre. The
garrison of the Fort started south along the lake
and at this spot was practically annihilated by In-
At 22nd St. is the Lexington and at 23 St. the
Metropole, both apartment hotels.
On the wTst corner of 24th St. is the Standard
Club, erected by wealthy Jewish manufacturers and
The stone building at the left w^as formerly the
headquarters of Dr. Doivie, founder of Zion City.
Residence H. N. Higginbothara
On the corner of 29th St., — No. 2838 — is the
residence erected by H. N. Higginbothain, partner
of Marshall Field and President of the World's
At 30th St. is the Lakota Hotel on the left and
the Bradford Hotel on the right.
At 3254 is the home of John Cudahy, the meat
We turn east at 33rd St., passing by a large
Jewish Synagogue at 33rd and Indiana Av. Then
south on South Park Av. to the fountain guarding
the entrance to Grand Boulevard, one of the widest
in Chicago, w^ith a parkway on both sides of the
main drive. It is 198 feet from curb to curb.
Many of the apartments along this boulevard
have been built within the last few years and are
typical of thousands of such buildings throughout
At No. 3612 — the house with the cone shap(?d
tower — is the residerxe of the well-known Rabbi
We turn east on Oakivood Boulevard at 40th St.
As an illustration of the rapid growth of Chicago,
just prior to the civil war, a magnificent stone resi-
dence was built at the corner of Grand Blvd. and
43rd St. — 3 blocks south of us. It was at that
time called "Story's Folly" because it was built so
far from the residence part of the city. The citi-
zens at that time could not imagine that the city
would ever extend out to this point.
Abraham Lincoln Centre
On the north side of this street several blocks
beyond the turn the large red brick six-story build-
ing is the Abraham Lincoln Centre, founded by
Jenkin Lloyd Jones. This is one of twenty-five
similar institutions that seek to provide a higher
civic and social life for the people.
Passing Cottage Grove Av., we enter Drexel
Boulevard, which extends a mile and a half south
to the northeast corner of Washington Park.
This boulevard is noted for its beautiful flowers
The white stone building on the left is the
First Christian Science Church.
Some of our wealthiest men have their residences
along Drexel Blvd.
At 4750 is the residence of John McCormick.
The red brick house with the iron fence, at 4800,
is the home of the Morris family, meat packers.
The large white stone house with iron fence
and gardens at 4830 is the home of Mrs. Chauncey
Oppcsite this is the home of Martin A. Ryerson.
At Drexel Square we turn east at the fountain
onto Hyde Park Blvd., passing the Hyde Park Ho-
tel and beyond the viaduct the Chicago Beach Hotel.
At the end of this street w^e turn on East End
Avenue and enter Jackson Park.
The large building rapidly falling into decay
was the Fine Arts Building at the World's Co-
lumbian Exposition and has since been occupied by
the Field Museum of Natural History. At the
time of the Fair this was considered one of the
most beautiful structures of the w^hole exposition
group. The building covers nine acres and is of
brick and steel covered with stucco. The exhibits
in this building attract students from all parts of
the world. When moved to the new building at
the foot of Grant Park, this museum will prove
of great educational value to many who are not
now able to avail themselves of its advantages.
The low one stor}' stone building at the left was
the Iowa Building at the World's Fair and is now
used as a rest room.
Directly ahead, the tall building with the tower
is the German Building erected by the German
Government during the World's Fair and now used
as a refectory.
On hot summer days the beach here has been
described as a second Atlantic City, with thousands
of bathers playing in the water and along the shore.
Just beyond the motor boat entrance to the la-
goon is a 9 hole golf course on the right.
You will also notice a bridle path at the right
which is for the exclusive use of equestrians. Many
residents of the South side take their morning exer-
cise under the trees along this path.
The drive here affords a magnificent view of
Lake Michigan and at night the sky to the South
is lit up from the glare of the rolling mills at
The building ahead of us and across the small
harbor entrance is a reproduction of the LaRabida
Convent in Spain. It was at this convent that
Columbus stopped over night when he was return-
ing, a discouraged and defeated enthusiast, from
the court of Queen Isabella. It was here that
La Rabida Convent — Jackson Park
Queen Isabella's messenger overtook him and called
him back to the Court. It is now used during the
summer months as a fresh air sanitarium for sick
The long pier running out into the lake was
a moving sidewalk at the time of the World's
Another reminder of Columbus are the small
caravels: Pinta and Nina, reproductions of the
boats Columbus used in discovering the new world.
A third caravel, the Santa Maria, was to have been
exhibited at the Exposition in San Francisco but
succeeded in getting only as far as Erie, Pa.
The Government maintains a life saving station
on the lagoon.
After parsing over the bridge we approach the
largest of Chicago's public golf courses. Often times
as many as 1,000 people play over this course in
one day. There are also 40 tennis .courts main-
tained for public use.
Over to the South are located the buildings of
the South Shore Country Club.
The tall flag pole before the golf club house on
the left, as we follow the lagoon, is a relic of the
Exposition. Down through this section ran the
famous Court of Honor.
Beyond the golf course, and reached by a bridge
over the lagoon, is the Wooded Island. Upon this
island are many things of interest. Here will be
seen the beautiful Japanese Buildings, erected by na-
tive artisans from Japan at the time of the World's
On this island is also the famous rose garden that,
when in full bloom during the summer months, is
a sight worth going far to see.
Cahokia Court House
There is a'so on this island Cahokia Court House
that Wcis built in 1716 at Cahokia, 111, and moved
to Chicao;o in 1905. As a young lawyer, Abraham
Lincoln argued cases in this court house. The
building is worth examining as an example of
pioneer architecture. It is constructed of square
walnut logs held together w^'th wooden pins. With-
in are original documents pertaining to its inter-
esting history. This quaint old structure is alive
w^ith interest to any one concerned with historic
Through the trees as wx go north you wn'll see
in the distance the beautiful bridges built by the
Japanese Bridge — Jackson Park
In the distance as we turn you get another view
of the Field Museum.
Passing out of Jackson Park we get into the
Midway Plaisance, which will be remembered by
those who attended the World's Fair as the place
where the amusement concessions wTre located. In
winter the sunken gardens are flooded with water
and furnish sport for skaters.
Practically all of the land on both sides of the
Midway is owmed by the Univosity of Chicago
whose buildings appear on the right. This institu-
tion is one of America's largest universities. It has
been endowed by John D. Rockefeller and other
prominent men with many millions of dollars. The
buildings are all of the Gothic style of architecture,
built of blue Bedford limestone.
Womans Dormitories — University of Chicago
Kelly — Beecher and Foster Halls
As we come to the last of the University Build-
ings you will notice a low building on the left side
of driveway with a number of statues around it.
This is the residence and studio of Lorado Taft,
Midway Gardens is at the end of the Midway
and at the entrance to Washington Park.
Entering Washington Park, we see on the right
the place where the Archery Club holds its annual
contests and on the left the lagoon where fishermen
practice at fly casting.
Administration Building — Washington Park
Near the smokestack are the Park stables and
just beyond, where the Pergola faces the road, is the
Administration building of the South Park Com-
To the right is the conservatory filled with flow-
ers and plants from all over the world.
Both Jackson and Washington Parks were orig-
inally barren, sandy, level land. All the hills and
lagoons were artificially made and the present beau-
tiful appearance of these parks is a tribute to the
skill of the landscape gardener.
Just beyond the Refectory we go west into Gar-
field Boulevard, which we follow for several miles.
The large red brick building on the right is the
James C. King home for aged men. Mr. King,
who died in 1905, left by will a large amount of
money as an endowment fund for this unique insti-
tution. By paying $500.00 any man of good char-
acter over 68 years of age, and who has resided in
Cook County the previous ten years, may be admit-
ted and is taken care of for the rest of his life. The
place is luxuriously furnished, the meals are equal
to those served in a first-class hotel, and makes an
ideal home for lawyers, judges, teachers, business
men and others who are tired of the city's strenuous
We then enter and circle through Sherman Park,
a breathing space of 60 acres that has outdoor gym-
nasiums and playgrounds, swimming and wading
pools — assembly halls and club rooms, all designed
to improve the health, morals and mental culture
of the children living nearby. Chicago has scores
of parks similar to this and nearly a hundred smaller
parks which are of inestimable benefit to the popu-
lation living in the congested portions of our city.
Gage Park is at the intersection of Garfield
Boulevard and Western Avenue Boulevard where
we turn North.
About a mile north of Gage Park and two miles
east of the boulevard are located the Sfock Yards,
500 acres and Packing Toivtij 200 acres. Chi-
cago is the greatest live stock market in the world.
The Yards have accommodations for 75,000 cattle,
300,000 hogs and 125,000 sheep. Over one mil-
lion dollars is paid b}^ the packers for live stock
in this market every day. In addition to the im-
mense packing houses, the scientific utilization of
every part of an animal has developed hundreds of
industries using the by-products and locnted near
this section. Over 60,000 people are employed in
this district and the manufactured products amount
to half a billion dollars per year. Visitors from
all parts of the world have gone through the Stock
Yards and the leading packing houses employ guides
to conduct parties through their plants.
Just after passing under the second railroad via-
duct we come to McKinley Park. This park con-
tains swimming pool, children's play grounds, out-
door gymnasiums for men and women, tennis
courts, ball field, sand courts, wading pools, etc.
These small parks are very much appreciated by
Chicago people. Our present Mayor, Wm. Hale
Thompson was very active w^hile alderman in se-
curing play grounds for the children. He believes
that unless the children of the poor are provided
with means for healthy exercise we will see a ph}^-
ical deterioration in the race, such as has been ex-
perienced in the industrial cities of Europe.
Going up a little rise we pass over the old Illi-
nois and Michigan Canal, now fallen into disuse.
After passing under the viaduct of the Santa Fe
Railroad we cross the Drainage Canal. This was
built at an expense of over $66,000,000 and is con-
sidered one of the most wonderful engineering feats
ever accomplished. The current of the Chicago
River was reversed. Instead of the water of the
river flowing into Lake Michigan and thence via
the chain of great lakes into the Atlantic Ocean,
it now flows into the Drainage Canal thence via
the Desplaines, Illinois and Mississippi Rivers to
the Gulf of Mexico. The canal extends 36 miles
to Lockport where is located the power plant that
furnishes current for nearly 20,0C0 arc lights for the
city parks and boulevards. The Drainage Caral
is part of the Lakes to the Gulf Water Way and
has a depth of 24 feet, and even wdien cut through
solid rock the width is at least 164 feet, affording
easy passageway for vessels in each direction.
The works of the International Harvester Co.
are passed at the turn west and just beyond is one
of the Public Gardens. Here poor people are allot-
ted ground on which they can raise potatoes, vege-
tables and all kinds of garden truck. Many are
able in this way to reduce the high cost of living
and it is surprising the amount of produce some of
these gardeners are able to raise on these small
tracts of land. Chicago has done a great deal of
this kind of work and her example might well be
followed by other cities.
Children's Garden — Eckart Park
At a number of the small parks Children's
Gardens have been provided ; there each child is
given a small plot of ground, and furnished with
seeds, from which they can raise all kinds of
flowers. The little florists give most careful at-
tention to these tiny gardens — keeping them
watered and free from weeds. This teaches the
children the wonders of nature, besides developing
their sense of the beautiful and artistic. Unfortu-
nately, on this trip we do not pa.^s any of the Chil-
dren's Gardens, but the picture taken In Eckhart
Park gives an idea of their appearance.
At the turn north, is the House of Correction
known as the Bridewell, a city prison for idle or
disorderly persons over 16 years of age. Adjoining
is the John Worthy School for unruly boys under
16. To the right are the great works of the
Kimball Piano Co.
The large, low yellow brick building at one of
the turns along this boulevard, is the Carter Har-
rison Technical High School, one of the most mod-
ern of Chicago's schools.
Karel Havlicek — Douglas Park
Just beyond the viaduct of the elevated railway
we enter Douglas Park, 182 acres. Near the cen-
ter of the park is the monument dedicated by the
Bohemians to the State of Illinois, in honor of their
martyred statesman, Karel Ha-vUcek. The natatorl-
um in this park is unusually large and provides a
swimming place for thousands of men, women and
children. Garden Hall connects the Rose Garden
with the Perennial Garden beyond.
Douglas Boulevard extends west from the park
to Independence Square, where is located the beau-
tiful bronze and granite fountain dedicated to
American Youth and Independence Day. Turning
north we follow Independence Boulevard past rows
of comfortable homes.
Garden Hall — Douglas Park
Off to the right along this bouelvard is seen the
plant of Sears Roebuck Co., the large Mail Order
At the end of the boulevard we enter Garfield
Park, one hundred and eighty-eight acres. Passing
by the golf grounds, and just north of the large
ba-^d-stand are the Foj-mal Gardens. Here are em-
blems, designs, names, etc., formed by thousands
of varicolored growing plants. North of Madison
Street are the beautiful ivater courts — a very unique
feature in park ornamentation. Beyond the bronze
statute of Robert Burns is Assembly Hall. This is
used for social gatherings, dances, lectures, celebra-
tions, etc. Like all buildings in the Chicago Park
System no charge of -any kind is permitted for its
use. Winding around the lagoon and passing un-
Show House — Conservatory — ^Garfield Park
der the tracks of the elevr.ted we come to Garfield
Park Conservatory, ore of the largest of its kind
in the world. Now^here else has an attempt been
m.ade to build green houses for the exhibition of
exotic plants in a public park on such a large scale.
The exhibits of palm.s and rare varieties of trees
and tropical plants are intensely interesting. In the

variety of chrysanthemums, people flock to the con-
servatory from all parts of the cit\'. Over 30,000
visitors have viewed the exhibit in a single day. In-
side the conservatory are two charming little mar-
ble groups by Lorado Taft representing Idyl and
P^istoral. There are a number of fine statutes in
Garfield Park, including a bronze of Lincoln, the
Rail-Splitter, erected in 1911. Garfield Park con-
nects with the downtown loop district by West
Washington and West Jackson Boulevards.
Humboldt Park Rose Garden
Leaving the park v'a Franklin Boulevard and
Sacramento Boulevard we approach Humbolt Park.
To the left just at the entrance is one of the
city playgrounds. There are many similar to
this scattered over the city, generally located in the
most congested residence districts. Humboldt Park
is the largest of West Side Parks and considered
by many the most beautiful. Notice particularly
the Rose Gardens on the left w^hich have a foreign
atmosphere. These are laid out in a very attractive
manner and at certain seasons of the 3^ear are beau-
tiful beyond description. In the Rose Garden are
four bronze statutes by Leonard Crunelle. A statue
of Alexander Von Humboldt, from which the park
takes its name, is in the center of the driveway;
and to the risjjht is the band stand, with seats in the
amphitheatre for thousands of people. On the left
are the famous lily ponds. In this park are the
hatcheries that furnish fish to all of the parks.
Just beyond the rustic stone bridge over the lagoon,
observe the deep woods on both sides of the road.
You will imagine you are miles away from civili-
zation until you approach the open square where is
located the equestrian statue of Kosciuszkoj the
Leaving the park by Humboldt Boulevard, we

pass under the tracks of the Metropolitan Elevated
and go north to Palmer Place, then on to Logan
Square where we turn east on Logan Boulevard.
This joirs Diversey Boulevard which continues east
to Lincoln Park. After passing the north branch
of the Chicago River and going several blocks we
come to the works of the Steivart-lVarner Speedom-
eter Co., on the left.
We are now passing through a distinctively for-
eign section of the city on our way to Lincoln Park.
On the right at the entrance to Lincoln Park is
the home of Mrs. Lehman, owner of the "Fair" de-
partment store. Turning to the left and north, via
Sheridan Road, we will visit the new portion of
Lincoln Park, recently reclaimed from the lake. In
the apartment buildmg to the left of the entrance
of the park, resides present Mayor William Hale
Thofnpson and former Mayor Carter H. Harrison.
In the Park, the sandy beach beyond the lagoon is
a landing place for aeroplanes. The sand of which
all of this section of the Park was made, has been
taken from the lake by means of huge sand suckers.
On the right we pass the homes of Arthur Meeker
and /. Ogden Armour. On the left in the lagoon
is the three masted schooner serving as the club
house for the owners of motor boats. Ahead is the
free bathing beach w^here thousands of people in the
summer months enjoy a dip in Lake Michigan.
There are accommodations for 12,000 bathers.
We are entering the old portion of the Park. We
pass the children's bath houses and beach and the
Daily News Fresh Air Sanitarium for sick babies.
Schooner Club House
Past the viaduct is the landing where steamers dock
for the loop. On the right, the lagoon where the
oarsmen hold their regettas, and the motor boat
lagoon, with accommodations for 300 laimches.
Looking ahead across the water from here you can
see the ISleic Municipal Pier, being built by the city
to take care of the growing lake traffic.
Turning north again, we pass on the left, the
Grant Monument. Other monuments to be seen
along this drive are those of Franklin, Linne,
Goethe, Schiller and Beethoven.
As we turn south again, we pass, on the right.
Grandmother s Floiver Garden, in which nothing
but old fashioned flowers are planted.
High Bridge— Lincoln Park with Viaduct over Drive
Through the trees to the left are the Zoological
Buildings, housing more than two thousand speci-
mens. The animals are fed at 4 P. M., every day,
affording school children a convenient time for visit-
Grant Monument — Lincoln Park
ing the Zoo. Nearly every variety of animal (in-
cluding, by the way, cows, goats, sheep and other
domestic animals which city bred children do not
often see) is found in the Zoo.
At the turn, w^e pass St. Gauden's statue of
Lincoln, which is generally considered the sculptor's
masterpiece and the best likeness in existence of our
Leaving the park we go south on the Lake Shore
Drive where many of our most prominent and
wealthy citizens reside. The names and numbers
of the houses they occupy will give some idea of the
character of this neighborhood :
1550, Richard T. Crane, of the great Crane Co.
1515, Edward T. Blair, a street car magnate.
Lake Shore Drive
1500, Victor F. Lawson, publisher of The Chi-
cago Daily News.
-The rough grey stone building at 1450 is the
home of LaVerne W. Noyes, a noted philanthropist.
1434, Lawrence Heyworth, a banker.
The house covered with vines at 1430 is the home
of James Deering.
1420, Archibald E. Freer, a capitalist.
1400, Franklin MacVeagh, former Secretary of
1334, built after the style of an English Castle,
is the home of Mrs. Potter Palmer.
1258, Hugh J. McBirney, a wealthy lawyer.
1250, Geo. B. Haris, President Burlington R. R.
1240, Moses J. Wentworth, a telephone magnate.
1234, Chas. A. Munroe, a capitalist.
1138, Chas. H. Hurlbut, President of the Elgin
The light stone building, with lawn, at 1000, is
the home of Harold McCormick, of the Harvester
Company. Mrs. McCormick is the daughter of
John D. Rockefeller.
The apartment houses you see here are among the
most elaborate in Chicago and rent for a thousand
dollars a month or more. Some of them have ac-
commodations for their guests' autos on the top
floor. The property to the left was originally known
as Streeter-ville, Captain Streeter's boat having been
wrecked and tossed up on this beach. The lake
washed in sand, making a large area of valuable
ground and Captain Streeter claimed ''squatters'

to the great Chicago Fire in 1871 when one-third
of the people in the city were rendered homeless, and

Passing sonth on Lincoln Parkway we pass within
one block of Medinah Temple, the building ahead
with the Moorish dome. This is one of the finest
huildings of the kind in the United States.
After passing the Firginw and Alexandria hotels
we approach Rush Street Bridge which spans the
main hranch of the Chicago River. Experts declare
this the busiest bridge in the world, the traffic
even exceeding that of London Bridge. Boats leaving
for Milwaukee, Duluth, Macki-^ac, Det^rit, Cleve-
land, Buffalo and all points on the Great Lakes,
dock near this bridge.
Just bc3'ond the bridge notice the store tablet in
the wall of the building. This is the site of Fort
Dearborn, established in 1803, and consisting of a
stockade and block-houses as protection against the
The street to the right here leads into the famous
South Water Street
South Water Street, through which passes the food-
stuffs of the entire city. This is said to be the
busiest street in the world. An average of a million
and a half of eggs are alwaj^s on storage here.
Nearly three million cases of eggs are handled
yearly, together with twenty million dollars worth
of butter, one million barrels of apples, seven mil-
lion boxes of oranges, seven million bushels of po-
tatoes and one hundred and fifty-one million ban-
One of the things of interest to visitors is the
freight tunnel that runs beneath the ground here,
and connects the big w^holesale houses with the rail-
road and boat terminals.
Tunnels extend all over the business district
about 45 feet below the surface. The Chicago
Tunnel Company operate the system electrically
and require 60 miles of track and 3,000 cars to
handle the underpjround traffic.
Most of the hotels and large commercial houses
have sub-basements connecting with the tunnel and
use it to transport coal, ashes, freight, merchandise,
etc. Thousands of trucks and wagons are thus
dispensed w^ith on the busy streets, and traffic con-
gestion reduced in the Loop district.
Passing through the wholesale Tea, CofiFee and
Spice sections, w^here the street will soon be widened
and boulevarded, we approach the Public Library.
At the North end of Grant Park, opposite the
present library, in 1860 was located the Republican
w^igw^am, in which Lincoln was nominated for the
Presidency. The building was afterwards used for
Exposition purposes, but was torn down many years
ago. The buildings on the right are some of the
finest structures in Chicago. Among them are:
The New^ Michigan Boulevard Building.
The TowTr Building, formerly the home of
Montgomery, Ward & Co.
The Chicago Athletic Association.
The University Club.
The Monroe Building.
The Illinois Athletic Club.
The Peoples Gas Building, with the massive col-
The Art Institute on the left.
The Pullman Building.

Orchestra Hall, made famous by Theodore
The Railway Exchange.
The Stratford Hotel.
The McCorniick Building.
This brings us back to where we started and we
are sure you will agree that Chicago has a most
wonderful system of parks and boulevards.
